How Does it Work?  salicylic acid Salicylic acid lotion works by gently eliminating excess skin. When applied, it causes the top layer of skin to swell, soften and peel, removing dead skin cells. Salicylic acid also inhibits pores from clogging by slowing the shedding of cells inside hair follicles, which helps prevent acne.
